Legendary County Music Star Bound for Greenville Stage
Country music legend Gene Watson appears in concert Friday, December 1, at the Greenville Municipal Auditorium. Show time is 7:30 p.m.
Born in Paris, Texas, this masterful country stylist has been thrilling audiences for more than 50 years. Gene’s very first radio single, the self-penned “If It’s That Easy” was released in 1962. Although the song didn’t make any radio charts, it did start the career of the man now known as “The Singer’s Singer.”
Watson’s tally of 75 charted titles, 23 top-10 hits and six No. 1 records has led to membership in the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame. His hits that became classics include “Farewell Party,” “Fourteen Carat Mind” and “Love in the Hot Afternoon.”
The depth of emotion in his singing, his brilliant phrasing, his jaw-dropping range and the power in the lyrics he chooses are all factors in the awe he inspires in both fans and his musical peers.
As Rodney Crowell so aptly stated, “Just when I think country music is a lost art form, something by Gene Watson catches my ear and I can breathe again.”
Considered one of the finest pure-country singers of his generation Watson offers up one of the best traditional country shows in the business. His stunning voice captivates audiences and keeps his fans coming back again and again.
Tickets are $31 and $56 and are available at showtimeatthegma.com. Greenville Municipal Auditorium is located at 2821 Washington Street, Greenville, Texas.
